UberPay is focussed on quick efficient transactions times not security. It notable lacks any major security feature. It does offer a master-key in order to regenerate the private keys in case of loss or theft. A server side hot wallet of this nature is not recommended for savings. Also there is a lot of bad feedback about this wallet including lost funds.

What happens in the event of a disaster/theft/loss?

The user has a 'root key', 'recovery phrase' or 'word seed' that can be used to regenerate private keys.
